Lose weight fast and build healthier routines that last with HMR® (Health Management Resources), a clinically proven diet and lifestyle-change program specially designed to help people who want to lose a lot of weight.

More than just a diet, all-inclusive HMR plans also provide the education, support and accountaibility to help you make and keep healthier lifestyle habits.

Fast, motivating weight loss

For the past four years, US News & World Report  has ranked the program created by HMR and offered by UCI Health as a No. 1 Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet. 

Losing weight quickly is motivating and can help you stick to your diet longer.

*UCI Health is an official licensee of the HMR Program, a nonsurgical, clinic-based diet that US News & World Report has named a "Best Diet for Weight Loss." US News & World Report's Best Diets 2019 panel of nutrition experts ranked the HMR Program, which UCI Health licenses, but did not evaluate any products or services of UCI Health itself.

How the program works

  • Lose weight quickly. Take a break from food decisions and stay full with a nutritionally complete plan using HMR weight-loss foods. (Fruits and vegetables included on some plans). 
  • Learn new skills. Using the principles of behavioral science, learn how to make new routines around healthier eating and physical activity.
  • Get coaching and support. Weekly classes, digital resources and a mobile app provide extra support and accountability.
  • Maintain after the diet. Reduce reliance on HMR foods and transition to a long-term healthy eating plan.

Now more options: Lose weight here or at home
